Bah Humbug

I'll be back when I have a civil thought in my brain.

Another School Shooting

A 16 year old boy shot 6 of his fellow students. As of this time 3 a
re dead, and he's in grave condition since he shot himself in the head. Why? 
I just want to sob.

We went to a performance last night and really enjoyed it, Rita Rudner at Cerritos Center. The second act, which we skipped was Louie Anderson. Not a favorite. We went for a late dinner at a restaurant called Wood Ranch. It was really good. Tonight we will go to a concert for the RBCCA featuring a troupe called Cafe Musique. 2 nights out and then the rest of November will be quiet.

Turn the clocks back tonight. I think I will attempt church tomorrow. Been a while. Sometimes I don't know what I believe or don't believe. 66 years and now I look at things differently. Whether it's right or wrong I don't know. More confused than ever.

Smoke in the Air

The air is filled with the smell of fire. The Getty Fire is about 15 miles north of us. This is closer than any of the fires last week, so it stands that the smoke will be heavier. I shut the doors and don't go outside unless I have to.

Surgery awaits in January. Got an approval from the insurance but it expires Christmas Eve. So the referral people at the medical group will need to work their magic. Won't be anything big or exciting, but it's necessary.

I'm going to try out my Instant Pot tomorrow. That's scary for me. But if it goes well, it will be a great dinner.

Time change this weekend. Need it. Pounding my head on a wall again.

Peace and out.

More Alaska. More Rain.

 Was too cold to use the pool.

This is Seattle, before we left the dock. 
 This was part of a child's play area on deck 16 where the buffet was and if it was sunny and warm, would have been kids all over.
 Our patio, nice to sit on and watch the ocean...rather bumpy though on the open sea. Thank goodness for seasick meds and bracelets.
 Husband looking at artifacts in a park near Juneau anchorage
 Coming into Juneau
  We were parked in the furthest berth at Juneau. Had to bus it from town to get back to the boat.
 Weather improving
 Husband just enjoying his first free drink on the boat....endless cocktails

At the dock in Juneau. Wet and cold, and it didn't improve all day.

It's the largest state in the US and we only saw a small portion.

The best part of our Alaska Cruise for me.

20 Days.....

The Norwegian Bliss

This is our bucket list cruise, doing it in memory of my mom.
Both children, a niece and the errant spouse and I.
Other than the girl child, none of us have ever been on a cruise.
I have trouble getting to Catalina. 
Mid Ship, Mini Suite. 
Watching Glacier Bay from our balcony sipping tea.
Gold Panning.
Seeing the Yukon.
Lumberjacks and Crab Fests. 
Good food, good drinks, good laughs, and great memories to be made.

Twilight Zone "He's Alive".

This morning I watched an episode of the Twilight Zone, starring Dennis Hopper. It was called " He's Alive". It was scarily relevant to what happened this weekend. Watch it if you want. I thought it was interesting that it was screened today.
This is the closing narration from Rod Serling and it does ring true:

Where will he go next, this phantom from another time, this resurrected ghost of a previous nightmare – ChicagoLos AngelesMiamiFloridaVincennes, IndianaSyracuse, New York? Anyplace, everyplace, where there's hate, where there's prejudice, where there's bigotry. He's alive. He's alive so long as these evils exist. Remember that when he comes to your town. Remember it when you hear his voice speaking out through others. Remember it when you hear a name called, a minority attacked, any blind, unreasoning assault on a people or any human being. He's alive because through these things we keep him alive.
